International flights finally resumed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos State, after operations were suspended in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The first flight from Lebanon, which landed at about 2:30 pm, on Saturday, September 5, 2020, was operated by Middle East Airlines.
A visit to the Airport by Channels TV showed outbound passengers also preparing for boarding formalities.
It added that the passengers did not disembark in the usual way, they went through the finger and they were batched in twenties to the port of entry, in line with the Federal Government’s COVID-19 protocols; adding that Airport officials ensured that everyone maintained social distance and made sure that the port of entry was not clogged up.
However, it was reported that people still had to fill hard copy forms which should have been available online, according to the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
